KEYTRONIC CORPORATION ANNOUNCES LATE FILING
FOR THE SECOND QUARTER OF FISCAL YEAR 2021
Spokane Valley, WA — February 10, 2021 — Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq: KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), today announced the Company is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 26, 2020 (the “Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date without unreasonable effort or expense.
During the final preparation of the Form 10-Q, senior management of the Company received a notification from an employee regarding irregularities of the classification of inventory between raw material and work-in-process at a production facility. Management promptly reported the matter to the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”), which immediately took steps to commence an internal investigation. The Audit Committee retained and continues to work diligently with independent counsel and advisors to complete its internal investigation as soon as possible. As a result, the Company has not finalized its financial statements or its assessment of the effectiveness of its disclosure controls and procedures and any impact on its internal control over financial reporting relating to the Form 10-Q. The Company is not in a position to file its Form 10-Q at this stage of the internal investigation and as the Company’s independent public accounting firm undertakes its required procedures. At this time, the Company does not anticipate a material adverse impact on its historical financial statements.
In addition, the Company is cooperating with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) regarding the investigation and related matters, and the Audit Committee intends to provide additional information to the SEC as the investigation proceeds.
